Dora Tamana #21Sheroes

In the run-up to the elections, we’re celebrating #21Sheroes – some of the women who fought a racist, apartheid state to help win our freedoms. Their resistance, courage & protest inspired a legacy we honour in Freedom Month. They also remind us never to take our political rights for granted. Follow #21Sheroes for more. 

From a young age, Dora Tamana witnessed the violence, evictions & other injustices meted out by an oppressive regime. She was just 22 when her father was killed in the Bulhoek Massacre. A dedicated anti-apartheid activist & ANCWL member, she mobilised women against unjust pass laws & fought to promote the rights of workers. In uniting to vote for a better SA, we honour her legacy.
